THE ECB has announced that Yorkshire's Headingley Carnegie will host England twice in 2013 - but has missed out on a lucrative Ashes test.

Headingley Carnegie will be the venue for the second of two Test matches against New Zealand from May 24-28.

Yorkshire's headquarters will also be the venue for the first of five one-day internationals against Australia on September 6.

The club will announce ticket prices and dates of sale in the near future.

In addition to the New Zealand Tests and Australia one-day internationals, England will contest a five-match Ashes series from July 10-August 25.

Trent Bridge, Lord’s, Old Trafford, Chester-le-Street and The Oval have been selected as next year's Ashes venues.

As part of a packed 2013 schedule, the world’s leading eight teams will also contest the Champions’ Trophy in England from June 6-23.
